Gabonese-Congolese artist Borelson drops afrofusion dancefloor filler, “Summertime in Toronto”, out now.

After wrapping up his first-ever European tour just last month, Borelson returns with instant dance hit, “Summertime in Toronto”. The emerging artist is gearing up for a busy festival season with confirmed dates across Canada, and this cut couldn’t come at a better time.


Produced by Nigerian musician Omaremii, it’s an infectious single with amapiano sensibilities and featuring burgeoning Botswana and South African artist Nthabi Presh. Having grown up between Gabon, Congo, and France, Borelson’s put out two acclaimed albums in two years that blend the afrobeats, hip-hop and afrofusion influences of his youth. “Summer in Toronto”’s an extension of his past offerings with a whole new infusion of energy. 


Speaking on the inspiration behind “Summertime in Toronto”, Borelson shares, “The song’s main inspiration is Toronto, which is the best city in the world, especially when it comes to summer vibes. I was also inspired by Amapiano taking over the world, as well as how Toronto has fully embraced us Africans and our culture over the past few years. Despite everything going on in the world, I think we can all agree it’s still good to celebrate and be grateful for life. This song is perfect for that”.
